Hosea 9:7-9 The Voice (VOICE)

The days of punishment have come!
    The time of retribution is here! Israel will know this!
But because you are so hostile and sinful, you say about me,
    “The prophet is a fool! The man of the Spirit is raving mad!”
The prophet stands watch over Ephraim along with God,[a]
    but birds’ traps are set all along his paths;
Even in the temple of his God they show their hostility.
They’ve become deeply depraved, as in the days of Gibeah.
    God won’t overlook their wickedness; He’ll punish them for their sins.
